PET Extruded Polyester Strapping is the safe and economical alternative to steel strapping or banding systems. Extruded Polyester Strapping, abbreviated to PET strapping (polyethylene terephthalate), is used in heavy duty strapping applications demanding high tensile strength and fast application by the installer. Twice as strong as polypropylene strapping and as strong as steel banding, PET strap is capable of withstanding and retaining a much higher tension on rigid loads. Typical PET extruded polyester strapping applications include bricks, timber and textiles.
Extruded Polyester Strapping is also safer to use than steel strapping as it does not have sharp edges or present a whiplash hazard to the user. The features of extruded polyester strapping also provide many additional benefits over other strapping products. PET strapping is lightweight, flexible, easy to handle and will not rust (non-corrosive), scratch or stain strapped loads. Extruded Polyester Strapping is supplied on 406mm diameter x 150mm wide cardboard core. Polyester strapping wound onto a cardboard core can also be used with automatic and semi-automatic strapping machines. PET strapping tape can be friction welded or secured with metal serrated compression seals for maximum security. Alpha will offer high strength PET strapping produced from high quality resin in both SMOOTH AND EMBOSSED finishes.
